Celtic's 10-year wait for a Champions League group stage home win continued after the Scottish champions shared a pulsating 2-2 draw with  La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid on Matchday Three.

On a quite sensational night of European football in Glasgow's east end Brendan Rodgers side - who registered their first point in Group E - twice went ahead through first half oals from Kyogo Furuhashi and Luis Palma but the hosts were pegged back both times due to an Antoine Griezmann rebound after Joe Hart had initially saved his penalty and a second half header from Alvaro Morata.

It was the Scottish champions who drew first blood after four minutes when Kyogo bagged his second Champions League group stage goal after latching into Matt O'Riley's exquiste pass and he scooped the ball over the advancing Jan Oblak in the Atletico goal.

French international Griezmann then levelled the tie on 25 minutes after Greg Taylor had fouled inside the box. Joe Hart brilliantly pushed Griezmann's spot-kick onto the post but was out of luck as the attacker easily slotted home the rebound.

However Celtic hit the front again three minutes later as Luis Palma produced a rocket shot that flashed into the bottom corner of the net after Taylor had released Daizen Maeda.

The drama wasn't over as Alvaro Morata headed the Spaniards level again seven minutes after the restart as the game swung from end to end and Diego Simeone's team grabbed the contest by the scruff of the neck.

Despite Atletico's Rodrigo De Paul being sent off with eight minutes left to play but Celtic could not conjure up a winner.


Kyogo hits back-to-back Champions League strikes to put Celtic back in the Group E mix

The Japanese talisman made it two goals in three Champions League appearances for Celtic this season as he notched back-to-back strikes at Parkhead. The 28 year-old striker got Celtic off to a perfect start with a top drawer finish after just four minutes in this one. His compatriot Daizen Maeda was involved as he headed the ball into Kyogo who in turn shunted the ball to Matt O'Riley. The Danish international then cushioned a defence splitting pass into Kyogo's path which had quality and class stamped all over it. Without checking his stride the attacker who had continued his run ito the box then proceeded to lift a sumptuous dink over Jan Oblak in the Atletico goal. It was Kyogo's seventh goal of the season and incredibly his 61st goal in 96 matches for Celtic. It really was a beautifully crafted goal.

Brave Bernardo

It was a mixed feeling when Kyogo hit the back of the net. Amidst the euphoria of the striker scoring his second Champions League goal in as many games, his international teammate was in tears at the other end of the pitch. However, with chaos comes opportunity, and it was time to call upon reinforcements from the bench. Would Rodgers go for the tried and tested in David Turnbull, or would he throw a curveball and insert Paulo Bernardo into proceedings? He went with the latter, as the former looks set to be in the dying embers of his Celtic career. Big shoes to fill with regard to the man going off, but early signs were looking positive for the Portugal U21 international. Not afraid to get stuck in, the midfielder looked to get on the ball and make things happen. Not everything came off for him in the first half, but his keenness to not let the game drift by him was admirable. In the second half, his defensive capabilities were on full show, with a couple of important tackles and headers. He could have done better with Atletico’s second, as perhaps taking a yellow would have been the better option by bringing down his man. Much easier tests await him, but he can be happy with his contributions on the night.

King Luis Palma of Parkhead

If at first you don't succeed try and try again. Honduran winger Luis Palma was robbed of a priceless late winner by VAR in the last Champions League encounter in Paradise against Lazio. However, what a response Celtic produced to Atletico Madrid's equaliser from the penalty spot by Antoine Griezmann. Three minutes had barely past since the leveller when Palma smashed the hosts in front again after a wonderful move. Greg Taylor picked up the tireless Maeda whose low centre seemed to evade everybody but Palma had other ideas, He steadied himself and drilled an unstoppable drive that flashed into Oblak's net as Celtic hit the front again. It was a stunning strike and no more than Celtic's play in the opening 45 minutes deserved. After a breathtaking first half the men in green and white were rightfully 2-1 to the good at the break. Palma made way for Nat Phillips just after the hour mark in a tactical switch but it's fair to say that Celtic have a new hero in green and white.

Sensational Scales

I have been late to the party with regard to Scales, admittedly. With many people singing his praises, I chose to take my time and allow him to perform in a number of games before making my judgement on the player. This was the game that sealed it for me. What a game the Irishman had, again. The manager called him the biggest surprise of his managerial career, but it is not a surprise that he is continuing to produce at every single level. We are witnessing the birth of a star at Celtic here, mark my words. His distribution and calmness on the ball is levels above what we all witnessed against St Johnstone earlier on in the season. Now he’s doing it against the superstars of Atletico Madrid. Yes, he was part of a defence that conceded two goals, but he could do nothing with either. My player of the match for tonight, Maik Nawrocki has a hell of a job on his hands to shift him out of this team. Now a fully-fledged international, Scales will continue to improve under the guidance of the manager that gave him his big chance. A new contract is now a must for Celtic.

Celtic's agonising decade long wait for a Champions League home win goes on

And still Celtic's wait for an elusive Champions League group stage win continues. Rodgers men put everything into this match but came up just short. The first half the Scottish champions gave as good as they got and dictated the proceedings for long spells and scored two wonderful goals in the process. There was no shortage of guile, craft, endeavour and quality from the hosts. Celtic were well worthy of their first Group E point on a wonderful evening of European football in Glasgow's east end. However the La Liga side showed their class after the interval. Despite finishing the contest with 10-men Simeone's side always looked comfortable and contributed to a fantastic Champions League contest as two excellent sides slugged it out.
